HC Deb 16 March 1948 vol 448 cc1883-4
64. Mr. Keeling

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will arrange for the War Damage Commission to enclose with any letter to a Member of Parliament a copy of the letter.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

The Commission inform me that not all hon. Members want this. They will now add the hon. Member's name to the list of those who do.

Mr. Keeling

Will the Financial Secretary say why he is being so pernickety about this when it has already been granted for the Coal Board and certain other socialised industries?

Mr. Glenvil Hall

Certain hon. Members have indicated that they do not want a copy, and that being so it seemed reasonable to save paper by not supplying it to them.

Mr. Godfrey Nicholson

Will not the Financial Secretary realise that all Members want copies unless they state that they do not?
